Presented by Quinn Dunki. Mouse programming on the Apple II is a fascinating mix of old and new software paradigms. It's old fashioned ROM-entry-point style programming, but with slight nods towards modern API design and relocatable driver code. I spent some time working out all the gotchas in this, and will share that hard-earned knowledge with you. You'll leave the session with a basic mouse driver that you can tweak and use in your own programs. KansasFest - July 16, 2015

Over the years, millions of 5.25" floppy drives have been discarded because of an easily repaired defect: Loss of track-centering alignment. This problem is easily repaired with simple tools such as a screwdriver, a computer/monitor, and a software disk. Track-centering misalignment is suggested when a floppy drive can read its own written disks, but gives disk-errors when attempting to read disks written on other drivers. Likewise, the disks written on the misaligned drive give error...

The Apple II uses a technique called NTSC artifacting to display colors without additional hardware. The IIGS introduces new video resolutions that are somewhat at odds with NTSC timing. Generally, the IIGS's Super HiRes was thought to be an RGB monitor-only mode. However, by combining the technique pioneered by the Apple II with some clever Super HiRes trickery, maybe we can get more colors than ever thought possible.
